Betty

*** This bird is currently on our Waitlist and is with their current owner. It may be possible to visit and adopt this bird prior to it being moved to a foster home. Please keep in mind that birds on the Waitlist may not have had a veterinary visit. Their owners may or may not be caring for the bird at EBR minimum standards of care.***

Betty is a 17 year old Goffin's Cockatoo who has a lot of energy and a playful attitude. She loves loud rock music and will dance along with the beat. She has not had her flight feathers clipped in a while and enjoys flying (indoors) and doing laps around the house. She doesn't talk much, but has an adorable habit of mumbling in patterns that make her sound like she is having an animated conversation.
